    Robert-
     I think you will find the Citizen EcoTime series or Seiko Kinetic series 
    offer something close. Both are "permanent self powered" watches, one uses an 
    internal dynamo to "self wind" and the other a photosensitive face. Neither 
    needs batteries and they have quite a variety of models under $200. 
    http://www.princetonwatches.com is one of many merchants who offer them 
    discounted.
      If you are not in a hurry look into the notification feature of eBay: It can 
    email you when your exact description becomes available, i.e. "Seiko Sports 
    150".
    
     Waterproofing in watches turns out to be an elusive concept. Simply using the 
    crown destroys the seal under it, and after a year of average use no one will 
    warranty a watch for being waterproof until that crown and seal are replaced, 
    as far as I can tell. The only answer to "waterproof" is to buy two $20 
    Timexes and replace one if it fails. I'm astounded to say that I own two 
    "good" watches and the $14 Timex still outperforms both, even after they have 
    been calibrated.
